Islam was introduced in Georgia in 645 AD when an army sent by the Second Caliph of Islam, Umar, conquered Eastern Georgia and established Muslim rule in Tbilisi. Currently, Muslims constitute approximately 9.9%, of the Georgian population.
There are two major Muslim groups in Georgia. The Georgian ethnic Muslims are Sunni Hanafi and are concentrated in Autonomous Republic of Adjara of Georgia bordering Turkey. The ethnic Azerbaijani Muslims are predominantly Shi'a Ithna 'ashariyah and are concentrated along the border with Azerbaijan and Armenia.Thank you for visiting islam Wiki.
